Hello! I hope wherever you are you are having a lovely time. I know that I have had quite a busy but also enjoyable month. On paper, I had a pretty average reading month. I read 10 books total, two of which were audiobooks. This is certainly much more on par with my standard pace compared to last month’s six. In terms of motivation I had a bit of a book slump in the middle of the month. I was simply not feeling any of the books I was reading. Not to fear, though! I am already out of it.
I have finally finished Eat, Pray, Love, which was one of the books that was haunting me and certainly not helping the slump. ‘Why did you keep reading it?’ you ask. Because it was for a challenge and I was forcing myself to finish it. However, I got motivated by Bonnie Garmus’s Lessons in Chemistry, which I finished in only two days. If I get my act together you can expect a review of it up in a few days.
And despite my mid-month slump, I still read lots of amazing books this July, including All My Rage, Little Fires Everywhere, Delilah Green Doesn’t Care, and, of course, Lessons in Chemistry. Keep reading under the cut for all the books I read this month and some of my thoughts on them.Continue reading “July Wrap Up // at least I read more this month”
